Strategic Plan

DISTINCTLY UVIC | A Strategy for the University of Victoria

Effective September 2023, UVic's Strategic Plan urges us to be creative, innovative, collaborative and compassionate and brilliant—not on our own, but together. The plan articulates the strengths and priorities that make UVic distinct and guides us towards building a better tomorrow.

UVic's Indigenous Plan 2023 represents an essential foundation for UVic’s future, alongside UVic’s new Strategic Plan and other institutional plans. This plan weaves together our shared responsibilities to the local Nations, Indigenous students, staff and faculty through local laws and philosophies.

ASPIRATION 2030: A Research & Creative Works Strategy

At UVic, we’re driven by our curiosity, engagement and innovative spirit to help solve the world’s biggest problems. As we list what we aspire to be and to do by 2030, we know that we are already well on our way. We’re guided by our principles, our extraordinary natural and cultural environment and our deep respect for the learning that has come before.

The UVic Research and Creative Works Strategy identifies UVic’s research aspirations, actions, outcomes and impact areas.

Equity Action Plan

The Equity Action Plan’s goals provide UVic with strategic direction to advance equity, diversity and inclusion, and to create the conditions in which everyone feels a sense of belonging: as connected and respected parts of the university community.

Accessibility Plan

UVic's Accessibility Plan includes guiding principles and existing resources. It summarizes consultations, barriers and priorities for the next three years to address those barriers.

It is deeply informed by extensive campus and community engagement.
